Edward Henry Palmer rendition of Surah The Overwhelming, The Overwhelming Calamity, The Pall(al-Ghashiyah)
88:1 Has there come to thee the story of the overwhelming
88:2 Faces on that day shall be humble
88:3 labouring, toiling,
88:4 shall broil upon a burning fire
88:5 shall be given to drink from a boiling spring
88:6 no food shall they have save from the foul thorn
88:7 which shall not fatten nor avail against hunger
88:8 Faces on that day shall be comfortable
88:9 content with their past endeavours,
88:10 in a lofty garde
88:11 wherein they shall hear no foolish word
88:12 wherein is a flowing fountain
88:13 wherein are couches raised on high
88:14 and goblets set down
88:15 and cushions arranged
88:16 and carpets spread
88:17 Do they not look then at the camel how she is created
88:18 And at the heaven how it is reared
88:19 And at the mountains how they are set up
88:20 And at the earth how it is spread out
88:21 But remind: thou art only one to remind
88:22 thou art not in authority over them
88:23 except such as turns his back and misbelieves
88:24 for him will God torment with the greatest torment
88:25 Verily, unto us is their return
88:26 and, verily, for us is their account
